As usual of last few weeks, I will here post my recap of last week runs. I am not sure which week I am on now either 7 or 8. I usually lost count once passing 5.
Unlike the previous week with only 9 miles, this week I put up a big number. It wasn’t a surprise since I knew I would be doing a 50K long time ago.
Tuesday: about 4 mi, with group
Wednesday: rest. again I failed to wake up early to run and at night I was too tired to go back out.
Thursday: 4 mi, with group. uneventful. One of night we were rained on, probably was Tuesday.
Friday: 0. Was very tempted to run, but in the end listened to reason since I would be doing a 50K the next day.
Saturday: 32 mi. according to garmin. People say the course was long. I haven’t checked the website. I know the marathon course was 28 miles. I felt the ultra course was about right. Hopefully a full report will be prepared if I get to it.
Sunday: 10 mile race in Reston. Plus a just shy of a 16 mile long run.
Total: 66 miles.
On one hand I am proud of the number, but the 50K came with a cost. I kind of overextended myself and came away with two bad foot! I rolled my left ankle. My right foot is more serious. I couldn’t walk without pain. I haven’t exactly found out the reason. I think it is more than skin abrasion on the back of my right heel. I somehow bruished it.
I am a bit concern now if I can run when I get to PA for Laurel Highlands training #2.
